World Concern Yard Sale

Aug 28, 2011   ~~~   Outreach Ministry

  International Bible Christian Fellowship (formerly known as Community Bible Fellowship) recently hosted a yard sale to raise funds for famine relief in the Horn of Africa. Combining church donations and sales, our church was able to raise close to $1,700.   The cost to feed a family for a month is $60. With our $1,700 donation, we have helped World Concern feed 28 families!  Many thanks to Chris Sheach of World Concern for educating us about the devastation in Africa, and the Evans family for coordinating the event.
